10 Most Expensive Movies Made Last Year


Everything costs money, especially making movies. The price tags on films are atrocious, enough to settle any family comfortably for life, but this doesn’t seem to bother anyone, except maybe starving children or those who have no shoes. It bothers me, but all I can do is write about it. So here you are with ten insanely expensive flicks made last year.

1. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies…$250,000,000


The third and final installment in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy was the single most expensive movie made last year, but it didn’t stop there. It is also one of the top 15 most expensive movies ever made of all time. There’s some food for thought when you go to see this one.

2. Transformers: Age of Extinction…$210,000,000


In my opinion this series of films has never been good enough to illicit such spending on another sequel, but obviously a lot of other people did. Enough, anyway, to justify the go-ahead. No action flick on earth should carry this price tag.



  1. Elicit, not illicit, dummies. The fact that they were bloody expensive wasn’t in any way “shady(illicit)”, just a case of Hollywood’s money-induced magic. The more expensive, the better the movie that the starry-eyed investors spent their millions on. If they were expensive to make it would tell the dumb masses watching them that they should have a great time. ”
